If millennials can afford fancy costume dresses right now, there's very little reason to increase the minimum wage.

Ross is like "I dont get it. Why don't federal workers skip going to the talking pictures for one weekend, and instead use that nickle to buy some bread and eggs from the general store. There should even be enough change to get a new onion for their belt."

The government needed money for stupid wars but they couldn't tax the nobility or the clergy for it.
When you take a closer look, almost every revolution includes a group of aholes who don't want to pay taxes.

It seems to me that this country (and much of the west in general) has had a really long period of time of relative prosperity and stability, in which the lessons of past popular uprisings have been forgotten.  But in today's climate, with huge and increasing gulfs of wealth between the very top of the economic pyramid and the vast numbers of people living paycheck to paycheck, some of those same strains on our society are coming back into view.  It is somewhat ironic that it was the success of the social welfare programs enacted to combat the privations of the great depression that allowed us to forget.  And it is those exact institutions that are now the target of the people who arguably benefited the most from them.

It brings to mind a man standing on a stool with a noose around his neck, frantically and industriously hammering away at the legs of the same stool.

It's my understanding that he agreed to testify on a matter of concern to Congress, so had to be there.
